OK, I"m already running out of time for this but I did my first job, for my family. Unfortunately, my phone is not able to take good pictures at night, so I can't show you. I think it looks good. But, it took me over 6 hours. Maybe I will get faster, but the house had gables so I had to stand on an 8 foot step ladder for 3 gables; this was the slowest part. At one point, I was standing on the last step of the ladder (somewhat scary) to reach the highest point. I strung about 200 feet of lights, but 40 feet were on a wall outside the porch, so those were done in less than 30 minutes. So let's say the majority of the work was 160 feet, of lights over 8 feet off the ground. Without pictures, what do you think I should have charged? If you want I will try to take pics, if I have to take them during the day, to help get an estimate. It really wasn't that hard, just pretty slow. So my biggest fear is underbidding these jobs. Sorry if this is in the wrong place; I was thinking of the marketing for Christmas lights.
